The following notes are a transcription and a translation into English of lecture notes (192 pages!) of de Bruijn's course on combinatorics, originally given in the 70s and 80s:

http://goo.gl/ZXO5AV

you may be surprised where they are hosted. From the introduction:

Combinatorics is mainly about counting. The nice thing about counting is that you learn something about the thing that you are counting. While counting, you notice that your knowledge about the subject is not sufficiently precise, and so counting becomes an educational activity. When two sets have the same number of elements, you try to understand why that is the case by establishing some natural bijection between the two.
N. G. de Bruijn recalls that sometime around 1975, he counted the number of a certain type of logics with three variables. There were a lot of them; some number with 14 digits. A little while later he saw an article that was about something completely different, but it concluded that the number of those objects was exactly that same number with 14 digits. He got curious and read the article very carefully. Indeed, if you thought deeply about it you could see that you could interpret those objects also as logics.

Once again, IBM scientists are opening the eyes of the world to objects that exist only at the atomic scale.

Select an image. Server install image. The server install image allows you to install Ubuntu-Server permanently on a computer for use as a server. It will not install a graphical user interface. There are five images available, each for a different type of computer: ...

Received email stating my canvas print was ready for pickup. When I got to the store, they had not started printing yet. Was told to wait 15 minutes and 2 hours later it was complete. Totally unsatisfied.

Eddie really helped me out when my car was making a terrible rattling sound from the engine. Same day repair - and he even handled the warranty on a part I thought had expired, saving me over $300! Highly recommended and will revisit in the future.
